Keith Lawson contributed the photos that are displayed within this and the next few pages. Originally from the Lancaster area, Keith joined the White Fathers seminary at Blacklion in 1958. He was therefore a contemporary of people such as Pat Shanahan (his co-ordinand), Michael Goodstadt, Tony Visocchi and several others who feature in this collection.

(Included, also, are some photos that he took during his days as a White Father missionary in Zambia.

Mike Kelly revealed a talent with water colours during
his days at The Priory. Here here is painting the lough at Blacklion
—— with a Swiss Philosopher confrere yet to be idenified.

Left : Brian Hoxley ('Oxo')
Strangely, Brian is not included in the official database of UK and Irish students, though
Graham
Hoxley is listed as being at Blacklion during this period—who was also known as Oxo.
This person does not look like the Oxo that I knew at The Priory, however. (Eric Creaney agrees)

Eric Creaney writes (18/05/06) :

" . . . . . That is Keith Lawson on the left, with Gerry Stones to his left
with the shock of hair. I think that could be Pat Mulvey's eyes
above the Bishop's hat and Manus McGuire's head
half hidden to the right of the hat.
